AOPA Live This Week - August 15, 2013

The FAA has proposed a sweeping airworthiness directive (AD) requiring the removal and inspection of thousands of after-market cylinders installed in Continental aircraft engines.

Also this week, Rod Machado gets back into spins, and how to stop them before they start, in his License to Learn segment, and producer Paul Harrop scopes out glasses that can protect the eyesight of pilots targeted by lasers, an increasingly common event.
